28 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

I open with e4 as white and respond to e4 with e5, and d4 with d5.

Favorite players are Magnus Carlsen and Hou Yifan.

dumbgai: <Is friendship worth sacrificing for chess?> Not sure if serious
   Jul-28-15 Navara vs Adams, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: <MindCtrol9> Navara

dumbgai: A live rating of 2770.3 and in the top 10, ahead of Aronian. Ding is making great strides!
   Jul-25-15 R Rapport vs R Wojtaszek, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: <Rapport is his generation's Jobava> It's a good comparison. Both play unusual openings, both are capable of brilliant attacking games, and both know how to make a bunch of nonsensical moves and lose embarrassingly.

dumbgai: I enjoyed reading the Chessbase article until I saw Giri's atrocious purple suit. My eyes, the goggles do nothing!

dumbgai: <Hitomi Tanaka> Don't let the children know who that is. :)

dumbgai: Nope, Rado messed it up and now Navara is winning after his king walk. To be fair, it was a tricky endgame for black.
   Jul-22-15 V Fedoseev vs Wei Yi, 2015
dumbgai: Not really, the endgame would be hopeless. Black just pushes the a-pawn and d-pawn and white has no chance of stopping both.
   Jul-21-15 Ding Liren - Gelfand (2015) (replies)
dumbgai: I just read the Chessbase report on this match that said Gelfand requested a rest day following game 2, but was denied. So maybe he was suffering from illness or fatigue, which contributed to him losing games 3 and 4. Or maybe he simply wanted an extra day to prepare. We'll never ...
   Jul-21-15 P K Wells vs Shirov, 2006
dumbgai: <Rookiepawn: Bad thing about engines is they killed correspondence chess.> Good riddance.
